Question about Dodge Stratus
If it is leaking at the gasket, remove and replace the gasket.
If it is leaking at a corner from a rust spot, you may be able to repair it if the hole is small with Puddy Epoxy, that sets in 5 minutes and cures in 1 hour or so.
I tried this on a 1998 Ford Taurus that had a difficult to remove oil pan that seemed to drip oil when shut off.
I got a screwdriver and poked a larger hole in the oil pan and made the edges go ragged around the hole.
Then, I sprayed it with brake cleaner to get the oil residue off.
Then, I got a golf ball sized amount of Puddy Epoxy, mixed it by kneeding it in my two hands, then I applied it to the hole. It works great, going on 2 years.
A lot cheaper than a new pan removed and replaced, by the way.
Good luck on this repair.
